Stunning Susan steals the show at red carpet opener in Cannes

Susan Sarandon looked striking at the Cannes Film Festival as the 70-year-old actress took to the red carpet last night.

The first day of the event also saw Elle Fanning, Naomie Harris and Robin Wright in front of the lens. Sarandon wore an off-shoulder green velvet dress with shades to complete her outfit.

However, Will Smith caused controversy by defending Netflix, which has two films competing for the Palme d'Or prize.

Critics have hit out at Netflix's inclusion and a new rule has been introduced for next year requiring films to have had theatrical distribution in French cinemas.

But Smith said: "In my home, Netflix has been nothing but an absolute benefit. My children watch films they otherwise wouldn't have seen. It has broadened my children's global cinematic comprehension."
